Great Granny Continuous Curve

I have been working with Lucey to get this Great Granny finished. It took three rows before I figured out a path so I wouldn't have to either retrace to get to a missed spot or stop and restart to catch a missed spot.

I am pretty happy with the way these turned out. First I did SID around each block. Then I did cc in each.

Now, what do I do with the negative space between the blocks?
I can picture feathers fitting into each indentation of the blocks, but I don't really know how to go about it. What will I do where they intersect? I have also thought about making squares in the space to repeat the shape of the blocks. I am a pretty new long armer and could certainly use advice from someone with more experience.

Any ideas?

I have linked up with Anything Goes Mondays (button on right).

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Great blocks. Love your color choices. :)

  2. I'm enjoying the modern/vintage look of your blocks. I'm not a long-arm quilter, so no help there, but I think I would lean towards the square or a more linear pattern - good luck!

  3. Thanks for showing photos of your quilting choice for this block -- I like doing that design and so appreciate seeing what it will look like on blocks!
